New York Times: Victoria’s Secret Is Ditching Its Angels

It is due to America’s reckoning with sizeism, lookism, racism, sexism and transphobia. The same is true of literally everything these days which has gone woke from the CIA to NASA.

New York Times:

“The Victoria’s Secret Angels, those avatars of Barbie bodies and playboy reverie, are gone. Their wings, fluttery confections of rhinestones and feathers that could weigh almost 30 pounds, are gathering dust in storage. The “Fantasy Bra,” dangling real diamonds and other gems, is no more.

In their place are seven women famous for their achievements and not their proportions. They include Megan Rapinoe, the 35-year-old pink-haired soccer star and gender equity campaigner; Eileen Gu, a 17-year-old Chinese American freestyle skier and soon-to-be Olympian; the 29-year-old biracial model and inclusivity advocate Paloma Essler, who was the rare size 14 woman on the cover of Vogue; and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, a 38-year-old Indian actor and tech investor. …

The VS Collective also includes Valentina Sampaio, a Brazilian trans model; Adut Akech, a model and South Sudanese refugee; and Amanda de Cadenet, the photographer and founder of #Girlgaze, the digital platform for female photographers. All of them, in the words of Ms. Rapinoe, are people who were not “typical brand targets in the past.” As for the fashion show, Mr. Waters said it would most likely return in 2022 in a very different form. What the brand will offer soon is a podcast featuring the women in the collective, a medium that requires no visuals.

“To rebrand is going to take a lot of steps to ensure that they have the consumer trust, that this isn’t just inclusivity-washing,” said Erin Schmidt, a senior analyst at Coresight Research. …”

The brand is pivoting to fat, ugly and “trans” models because it was using too many attractive models to sell lingerie. Victoria’s Secret in our new progressive era is that she has a dick.

CNN:

“In 2018, Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer for L Brands, faced backlash for a Vogue interview in which he stated he didn’t think the brand’s annual show, which debuted in 1995, should include “transsexuals” — an outdated term deemed offensive by many in the LGBT community. That year’s show turned out to be the last, only drawing 3.3 million viewers compared to 9.7 million in 2013.

The following year, Victoria’s Secret hired its first transgender model: Valentina Sampaio, who now joins the VS Collective. But the overhaul of the brand’s image may be a case of too little, too late, Fernandez said. …”

This isn’t really news.

I wrote about it at the time when the Victoria’s Secret fashion show was cancelled and how they were being pressured by progressive activists to move toward “trans” and “plus sized models.” Masculinity is also being redefined by the same degenerates to mean black effeminacy. The very same people have all of these stupid ideas from lingerie to women’s sports and are being allowed to ruin everything.

  1. This is actually a good thing. Allowing Jews to plaster pornographic underwear ads all over public areas was bad for society. Another remnant of boomer garbage culture that we are lucky to see dying off, like pro sports culture and TV culture.

    • Beat me to it. Looking at anorexic teenage skanks fresh from some Shlomo’s well worn casting couch is just disturbing, not sexy. Their synthetic crap made by slave labor just supports crotch rot too.

  2. I hope all this disgusting, grotesque faggotry in the mainstream media is a sign of desperation, a last-ditch effort to call attention to themselves before they disappear for good.

    And if the queers are offended by the word transsexual then I’ll be sure to use it a lot more often.

    • Well, of course, Dear Spahn, faggotry will never be ‘disappearing’, this because they have always been with us.

      Oh, yes, Sir – I remember them well from my childhood in The Olde South – the school librarian who walkt about as if a cork were stuck in his posterior, or the 40 year old choir teacher whose steady sidekick was a 15 year old.

      Then there was the lesbian couple down at the Raleigh Bridge Club, neither they nor their relationship recognized as such by the other bridge players, because, in those days, gays kept quiet, so that most straights never ever found out, if, that is, they did not really want to, and, in those days, most straights very definitely did not want to…

  3. VS models are cocaine skinny and flabby.
    Watch IFBB girls, packed and proportioned.
    Don’t support anything of L-brands, that’s Wexler, Epstein, pedophile pimps.

  4. Democratic Family Values=Homosexual Tranny Freak Anal Sex Pederasty…..

    Exact same Family Values as the Lincoln Project

    • @Patrick…

      Pretty much, Sir.

      Maybe it is just me, but, it does seem as if the whole country has taken on quite a bit more of the hue of brown than it ever had, and not just racially, either…

      • If you ever look at pictures of the men who fought in Lincoln’s war, you will notice that most of them had blue eyes. Many of them the very pale blue that you don’t see too often anymore. And that fact does have something to do with the current character of the country.

  5. Victorias Secret were going broke selling super models in sexy underwear. Now they are going woke to try to stop going broke. Apparently women don’t want to be sexy for their men any longer. They want to be fat, ugly, lesbians, because it is the fashion of the day. Something noticable about Russia when the Communists (Antifa) were running it, was the women at the front were fat and ugly. Now Antifa aren’t running Russia, the women at the front are slim and attractive. If you want to know who controls a society, look at its women.

    • As much as they may have looked like streetwalkers, the Madonna Fan Club of the 1980’s actually went through a great deal of trouble getting themselves all slutted up. From the copious amounts of hairspray to the overwhelming perfumes, excessive face paint, and the fishnet stockings, high heels, mini-dresses and a ton of jewelry, those girls were meticulous about their appearances. Now, many girls and women can barely manage to pull on a pair of pajama pants, a t-shirt and house shoes. Forget brushing their hair or putting on makeup. They have no problem whatsoever going out in public appearing in a way that no young lady with even an ounce of self respect would formerly want to be found dead. Someone labeled it “Slouching Toward Gomorrah.”

    • “Something noticable about Russia when the Communists (Antifa) were running it, was the women at the front were fat and ugly.”

      Is that impression real, or did it in fact come from James Bond Movies?

  6. Paul’s First Epistle to Timothy: “I want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes…”

    Prophet Isaiah: “The women of Zion are haughty, walking with outstretched necks, flirting with their eyes, strutting with swaying hips, with ornaments jingling on their ankles. Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the LORD will make their scalps bald. In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces, the earrings and bracelets and veils….”

  7. Fun fact:

    The average female negress has a higher level of testosterone than the average Asian male.

  8. Beauty? What beauty? For the life of me, I have never understood why Victoria’s Secret are considered an étalon of beauty. Take the very photograph in the head – disgusting tanned skin, shaped in the image of the Negro ideal!

    For true beauty, check out any lingerie item sold on AliExpress, or the girls on Xiuren/MFStar/Bololi. Westerners, meanwhile, are used to eating shit and demanding more.
